post about the romney camp taking advice from both sides. you can see this in the confused nature of the foreign policy. but on the debate, again, the vagueness of it. saying, well, you agree in 2014, we do too, but and then there is that sort of -- it's very, very difficult for the romney campaign who desperately wants me to say we are not like this other guy who you don't like much, but we are. >> right. that's right. exactly. >> on the afghanistan time line, same thing. look, there is the issue of how many troops remain after 2014, 15,000, 10,000, what their abilities and what their duties will be. iran, for instance, it's like, well, i mean, there's -- we -- joe biden and barack obama have said that we will not allow iran to get a nuclear weapon. they disagreed on where this is and where the intelligence is on this. look, if you want paul ryan to be specific about it, what will you do? will you go to war? that's biden hectoring him. i think there's an opportunity for the left of the democratic party to say the same thing to joe biden. when we say we will not allow it either, what

romney up four points over barack obama. both parties have a tortured emotional lelationship with polling. why do we continue to listen? more importantly, what are the polls actually telling us? joining us is nate silver, author of "the signal and the noise: why so many predictions fail." maya wiley, profession sor for the university school of law and dave moore, author of opinion makers. a senior fellow at the institute of new hampshire and an editor of gallup where her worked for 15 years. good to have you here. nate, this is a quote from your book, about prediction in a broad sense. interesting stuff about how we use data to make predictions and how we, as we get more an more, how we identify what we need. there's more and more polls and they drive me nuts. not only does it lose the signal, it ak sen waits the noise. if a new poll comes out with a democrat with a lead -- we saw it in an arizona poll. president obama winning arizona. >> it was a big story, obama was up two in arizona, it's an unlikely result given where the election is at right now. a good pollster will have the

tells about employment. it's exactly, you can go back through the speeches and talk romney's praise for the race to the top. the story that i think both campaigns are telling about a vision for a post recovery economy is one about working. >> don't answer a basic question -- >> obama administration it's arne duncan. it's not just because he's a harvard basketball player, but he's been willing to take on the unions and do the right thing for students when david axelrod gets upset with him. >> we can have a different conversation about education, is it six major companies, all of whom have $15 billion in asset ors is it a society with a few start ups that eventually might take their place? or is it -- >> first of all -- >> what is it actually look like on a institutional level not a worker -- >> to be clear, in these kind of jobs, i don't think mitt romney thinks these big, huge corporations are the answer. as a matter of fact, mitt spent much of his consulting career critiquing how the big elephants weren't working well. most of these companies, by the way, are not going to be, you k
